Got me thinking about the YMCA I do and I was to lazy to get out truck scoop the sidewalk and salt it So I cleaned it with truck then I back the truck up and spread salt on it after doing that one time that's how I always do it during after hours

A number of guys do that here. Just need to be darn sure its good concrete. Would not want to be the one replacing it. The one I broke was 2-3 inches thick and I bet poured in the 50's. I know of one instance where we had a big snow and a company rented a pay loader to move the piles back, by the time they were done they broke the last 5 ft of the whole parking lot by driving off the edge.
